Borrow Books from Other Libraries - Inter-Library Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) will work with you to try to obtain the research materials you need from other libraries; we can borrow books, articles, theses, musical scores and more.

A note about ILL and theses and dissertations:

  • Borrowing a thesis may take more time than borrowing a book, because the lending library must scan the entire document.
  • Libraries sometimes refuse to loan a thesis
  • There may be a charge involved with lending a thesis. We will try to get a copy for free; if we cannot get a copy for free, charges for one thesis will be covered by the library. Charges for additional theses will be the responsibility of the student.

Borrowing books from UVA, Tech and other nearby universities: Hollins students may borrow items from the Virginia Tech and University of Virginia libraries, using a valid Hollins ID. We may be able to work with you to obtain borrowing privileges at other nearby universities if you are working on your thesis, or on another long-term research project; contact Public Services Librarian Maryke Barber for more information: (540) 362-6592, mbarber@hollins.edu .
